obama 3.0, "washington post" writes this budget request reflegts obama's stark shift in strategy. he's begun a charm offensive in hopes they, the republicans will take seriously his offer to overhaul entitlement programs in exchange for increasing tax revenue. obama's aides have not been optimistic about the prospects for a deal but they argue that his strategy of outreach coupled with public events offers the best path forward for progress. the white house may see the con sill terry approach as the best path forward, but what is the end game when the goal posts are set in the middle of the field. ezra klein writes notice "washington post," the upside of the strategy is clear -- obama gets caught trying on a budget compromise. by starting in the middle, liberals worry that obama risks pushing a final compromise to the right. if the left is unhappy, what of the right this morning, house speaker john boehner issued a statement suggesting president obama isn't making a serious offer at compromise. if the president believes these modest entitlement savings are needed to help shore up the p

, any time you challenge the president, president obama, is good politics. good politics? and that's why it's so hard to get things done in washington. republicans have been blocking the president on everything. on gun control. on immigration. on gay marriage. on a fair budget. they've even opposed him on policies they used to support. in the process, the gop has made the choice to hurt real americans. all in the name of so-called good politics. if he's for it, they're against it. and the president knows it. >> they've said no to just about every idea i've proposed, every policy i've proposed. even ideas they've traditionally agreed with. no, i'm not exaggerating. i mean, we had situations where they would sponsor bills, i'd say okay, and then they'd say, oh, well if you're okay with it we must be against it. happened a bunch of times. it's true. >> yes, it's true. and thanks to senator graham, we know why and from the first day he took office we've been seeing the blocking, the ugly attacks, the smears. and the manufactured crisis. >> some have said it was indelicate of me to sugges

. >>> first, though, our top political headlines on this sunday. president obama spent easter morning at st. john's church in washington. he walked to sunday services from the white house with the first lady and their daughters. the president will head to denver this wednesday to push for stricter gun control laws. republican senators marco rubio and rand paul have already threatened to filibuster proposed legislation. mark kelly, husband of former congresswoman gabby giffords had a message. >> 94% of his constituents support a universal background check. for senator rand paul, it's about 83% in kentucky. they should listen to their constituents and certainly shouldn't be getting in the way of the process. >> and the deal on immigration reform. it appears closer than-of-business and labor workers came to an agreement. hoping legislation will be finalized this week. then head quickly to the floor for debate. an optimistic south carolina saturday lindsey graham on cnn this morning. >> exception the we have an agreement between business and labor, between ourselves. it has to be drafted. ro

relish research projects they can hold up for ignorant mockery. here's a response to president obama's 2009 address before congress. >> and $140 million for something called volcano monitoring. instead of monitoring volcanos, what congress should be monitoring is the eruption of spending in washington, d.c. >> that guy. of course, about a month and a half later, there was a massive volcano eruption in alaska, but the persistent attacks have a real and destructive effect. this is what's happening to basic research funding. it's getting cut. the national science foundation national institutes of health are all suffering cuts from the sequester. republicans, led by senator tom coburn, even managed to smuggle an outrageous piece of language that instructs the director of the national science foundation that political sign research can only be funded if it is certified to promote national security or the economic interests of the united states. in other words, a rank bit of micromanaging by a few committed demagogues in the united states senate of the research agenda of academics. one of th

workers hit by the automatic budget cuts and "the washington post" says it might be a strong political move. let me quote "the washington post." by taking a volunteer cut in his own pay, no matter the size or amount, president obama is forcing the sequester back into the news and back to people's minds at least for a day or two. >> i think it could backfire, though, because what the president wants the sequester to be appealed. he thinks the cuts are too draconian and by taking his own pay cut it sort of implies, hey, look, we're all going to take these cuts. it sort of implants the sequester as not something that is going to be repealed. >> angela, you're nodding your head. you don't agree with that? >> i don't agree with that. it wasn't just the president but it was attorney general holder and secretary hagel and secretary kerry. i think what they are saying is these are tough but we don't want the hardworking americans that are in these regular government jobs to be suffering the most from the sequester. >> what it has not been is any republicans. i want to see when they are going t

leaders in washington, who seem so deeply divided about an issue such as universal background checks, where the country is not divided itself. >> connecticut acts as president obama is out west today, trying to pressure congress to act. >> this is not easy. and i'll be blunt, a lot of members of congress, this is tough for them. because those who are opposed to any form of legislation, legislation affecting guns, they're very well organized and they're very well financed. but it can be done if enough voices are heard. >> joining me this hour, mark kelly, who with his wife, former congresswoman, gabrielle giffords, has become a leading voice for tighter gun laws across the nation. >>> countering the threats, the u.s. sends new missile defenses to guam as north korea deploy as medium-range missile to its coast. we're live with richard engel. >>> and horroring courageous women. and happy anniversary to us. join us as we celebrate our five years of "andrea mitchell reports." >> some of the responsibility for the gridlock in the this town. to not being open up to the hill and not doing co

"the washington post". obama on guns too little too late. on almost every topic from budget negotiations to national security, washington seems only to act these days in response to crisis if it acts at all. obama errored in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes and energy and immigration and he compounded the error by sending j joe biden to conduct a study. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign to maintain the momentum. mark kelly has been, obviously, outspoken advocate on gun control legislation and he has been going around and buying guns and showing how long it takes to fill out a background check. i think it was like five minutes and 36 seconds, just if you care. if you can wait five minutes and 36 seconds for your gun. >> so i'm hearing behind the scenes there is still a deal that is being worked on universal background checks but yesterday it sound like it might be dead. >> they are still trying to figure out some sort of compromise. again, the legislative strategy is c

we have forgotten. >>> for years now, we've been hearing opponents of president obama and some supporters of his say that he just isn't willing to fight for what he believes in. that he compromises too easily, that he gives up too easily. today, with most of washington politicians and the political media firmly convinced that nothing significant can be done on gun and ammunition control, the president stubbornly stood and fought for it, but he did not stand alone. he stood with the parents of children from connecticut to california whose lives were snuffed out by gun violence. >> that anguish is still fresh in newtown. less than 100 days ago that happened. and the entire country was shocked. the entire country pledged we would do something about it and this time would be different. i haven't forgotten those kids. shame on us if we have forgotten. >> the president pushed for approval of all of his legislative proposals, including an assault weapons ban, a limit on high-capacity magazines and he especially emphasized his most popular proposal. >> 90% support background checks tha

thesis in 2008 was hillary clinton would run and be the nominee, a little known senator barack obama upset that, and the rest is history. i suspect behind closed doors she's going to take some time off and do exactly what she's telling everybody, but nobody believes. >> joe biden was asked by "the washington post," has the race already begun, mr. vice president? the answer was, no. if you know anything about me, i've been making that same speech for 30 years. look into it. he has. he has great street cred. the women in the audience knew it, as much as they loved hillary, but that was clearly her home court advantage, but they know that joe biden has the sponsor of the violence against women act and has been a fighter for that. >> and it's been reauthorized. you know, we all know that joe is a mench, and the vice president is somebody, you know, who has a wide base of support, not only in the democratic party, but among a lot of people in the country, that believe that he is hard-working, straight-talking guy, but, you know, i thought the dynamic between former secretary clinton and v
